MST3K - The Early Years
8 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

DON'T ASK DON'T TELL is essentially a funny idea: take one long-forgotten old sci-fi potboiler and overdub the soundtrack with a lot of silly dialog that takes the film in a whole new (fabulous) direction. Something about gays and space aliens. There's some new footage, too. Mostly camp inserts like a bug-eyed alien line dance that's one of the film's best chuckles. But the whole thing is decidedly silly, and even at 75 minutes, it runs out of gas long before the credits roll. It's the sort of thing the guys from MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000 perfected without cannibalizing the film. While MST3K's witty commentary was of the collegiate sort, this film is strictly grade school stuff. If you crack up at fart jokes, this film's for you. The DVD is packed with extras, which is sort of like doing a documentary on a kindergarten pageant. I'll stick to MST3K - even if I don't get every reference, I don't feel like a grade schooler.
